An Exceptional Club for Women in Baltimore

Events At The Club

Club Offerings

bridgePlease check the calendar page for upcoming events.

Guest Speaker’s Luncheons are scheduled six to seven times per month, on differing weekdays, with topics from world events to regional issues to arts and history — even great books.

Oval Table Luncheons feature our own members, among the most accomplished of Baltimore area women, speaking on a variety of fascinating subjects.

Bridge is enjoyed every Friday and all members are welcome to join.

French Table, where most of the conversation is in French, meets monthly.

One Monday a month we have a Current Events Table where any member can come and participate in free-ranging discussion of current events over lunch.

entree plateLunch by Chance: several times a year invitations are issued to a random group of old and new members to attend a social lunch with about ten others. These are a great way to meet other members and enjoy a meal at the club that is a little more relaxed, and an excellent way for new members to meet more people.

Our festive spring and holiday cocktail parties offer the chance to share seasonal fun with friends and guests in the evening.

We can enjoy one another’s company at luncheon every weekday when we drop in or arrange a business meeting or social gathering. [If there are three or more in your party, we ask that you make a reservation.]

Members can use the club for private events, inviting their guests to enjoy our charming carriage house and delicious cuisine for lunches, dinners or cocktail parties. Please see the Private Events section for more details.
